My husband and I were traveling home (Ventura County) from San Diego, and decided to stop over at Valley View. The casino was a little smoky from cigarettes, and we had to walk all the way through the casino to get to the hotel check in desk. They definitely need another entrance for the hotel. They did offer a free all you can eat lobster buffet, and it was the best buffet we have ever eaten! We got there right when it opened at 4 pm and there was no waiting, and plenty of food. The hotel room had a magnificent view of the mountains, was roomy, modern and sparkling clean. We booked a room for a Monday, and the charge was a reasonable $89.
